WHILE seeds and plants are the essentials, having the right equipment is also vital.
A local company that ticks all the right boxes on that score is Two Wests & Elliott of Chesterfield.
Their new catalogue is, as usual, a most comprehensive guide of gardening essentials because they are both manufacturers and stockists.
Quality equipment includes staging, coldframes, raised beds, tools, heating and irrigation, propagation, cloches, bits and pieces - you name it, they stock it.
The company name is also interesting. The origins were a Mr & Mrs West with Elliott their pet dog!
To acquaint you with this company, I’ve a write-in competition for three of their new multi-trowels as prizes. Simply write in and tell me who Elliott was. Answers, in writing on a postcard please by Friday February 11 to: Stuart Jackson, c/o Editor’s Office, The Star, York Street, Sheffield S1 1PU. Usual SNL rules apply.
